St caste certificate and land encroachment regarding


Respected Sir/Madam,

Our Forefathers are belonging to ST (Kondh) caste and we are having 20 acres of land in Orissa, those lands were given to lease during 1970 and part amount Rs.3000/- have taken from the other party out of Rs.5000/-. After few years we have been asking them to handover the property to us by paying their amount, whereas, they have encroached the property and trying to change the documents by managing all officials. In this regard, our forefathers were engaged an advocate to get the support as they were illiterate (2nd Class Studied). The said advocate collected all original relevant documents from my forefathers and handed over to the other party including caste certificate original. Very recently we have applied for ROR patta in the district Sub-collectorate and found that the land is on the name of my forefather and the caste also mentioned as "Kondh" ST. Based on which we have applied for caste certificate at Tehsil Office, the respective Tehsildar is not accepting the application by claiming that we are not living in local. The Tehsildar informed the same message to other party and now the other party have filed a petition in Additional Land Commissioner that we have enrolled as BC caste in Andhra Pradesh after 1980s, as we do not have any proof of documents that as we belonging to the caste "Kondh".

Now our request is how to explain the answer to Additional Land Commissioner (in the Court) and also how to get the Caste Certificate as "Kondh".

Please suggest how to protect my Land from encroachment and how to approach ST Commission,

Thanking you,

R Satyanarayana
